Bruce Sloss

81 games
44 goals
Champion of the Colony 1911


In a career which spanned the years 1910 to 1914, Bruce Sloss played 81 games and kicked 44 goals for South Melbourne. He represented Victoria five times, and in 1911 won football’s highest individual honour when he was named Champion of the Colony. In the losing 1914 grand final, he kicked two of South’s four goals and was acclaimed as best on ground. This was his last game before he went to war. Tragically, Bruce Sloss was killed in action at Armentieres, France, in 1916 at the age of 28.
